Plane makes emergency parachute landing in Pacific Ocean near Hawaii

On 25 January 2015, a pilot flying a Cirrus SR22 aircraft from the United States to Hawaii successfully deployed the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) over the Pacific Ocean approximately 250 miles from Hawaii. The whole-airframe parachute system, which is standard equipment on every Cirrus aircraft ever made, worked as designed and resulted in both the aircraft and pilot safely landing in the Pacific Ocean under the parachute canopy, where he was quickly retrieved by a passing ship with the assistance of the U.S. Coast Guard.
